What's Krinova?

Krinova Incubator & Science Park
Krinova stimulates novel thinking and creates jobs and growth. We do this by transforming societal challenges into innovation projects, bringing companies, the public sector and academia together in collaborations that result in long-term and sustainable development.

We are a meeting place for people and ideas and offer innovation and development support to companies – ranging from idea stage to established ones. Within the profile area food – environment – health, we create partnerships and projects at a, regional, national and international level. For more than ten years, we have spearheaded various food-related initiatives and are Sweden’s first and largest incubator and science park with focus on food. Krinova is one of the 70 members of the national association for Swedish Incubators & Science Parks (SISP).
